IGRS updates its Early Irish Marriages Index

The Irish Genealogical Research Society (IGRS) has updated its Early Irish Marriages Index with another chunk of entries.

This means there are now 77,532 marriages recorded in the database, giving a new approximate total of 170,000 names including those of the brides and groom and their parents. All entries pre-date civil registration, and feature many alternative sources beyond parish registers.

The Early Irish Marriages Index is free to access on the IGRS's website, (While this database can be accessed by non-members, the IGRS Early Irish Births and Deaths Indexes are free only to members of the Society.)
